Poor Little Rabbit
Publisher: Gecko Press
Little Rabbit has fallen over. He's hurt his elbow and it's bleeding. Oh no! A plaster will definitely help – and maybe you could also try saying the magic rhyme...
Muhle's ingenious Little Rabbit books aim to make reading a really interactive experience, and demonstrate how interactive books for little ones can be original and accessible at the same time.
In this story, children can play along with making Little Rabbit better as they wipe away his tears, brush off the dirt and stick a plaster on his elbow – simple gestures, interacting with the book as a tool as well as a story, that take an ordinary event and make it relatable for toddlers.
The brightly coloured pages look really fresh and it's an imaginative way to engage little readers.
